|CHINESE LOW SELF-ESTEEM & ANTI BLACK POSTURE!|
|Apr 29, 2014 13:05|
|Visited china/guangzhou for the first time 2weeks ago for Canton Fair and actually noticed that the chinese people generally tended to have low self-esteem of themselves, more esp the females. I observed that the chinese females were sort of "racist" against black guys & arabs, but always ready to giggle sheepishly at every male white westerner in view.|
And equally too, chinese males tended to prefer/enjoy working or learning under white western bosses. I have heard of scenarios where black British/black American english teachers in china were sent packing due to chinese students' preference for white western english teachers.
My fear for china is its ability to manage, long term, its new economic status with this sort of rudimentary, unexposed culture. As an economic giant nowadays, methinks the chinese need to embrace all cultures/races in order to be able to maintain their current economic status, long term. A myopic view of other races except that of "pure white" westerners is rather unfortunate as the major importers of chinese products come from all tribes & races. Money (USD, GBP, EURO, RMB YUAN, et al) simply have no colour!
An embrace of all races by chinese people guarantees their future economic fortunes.
China Wake Up!!!

|GUEST92131||I don't know where you got your ideas, but China is the leader in helping nations in Africa in education, development and industrialization. |
Did you know this fact, or is it immaterial as far as you're concerened?

|Sometimes it happened but not all the time. We may term it as racist but to some others as preference. It is an attitude and attitude is not easy to change. For those believe in god (whatever god one believes) they know god creates humans of all colours, races and tribes. We should love god's creation.|

|I'm an American (white) and I work in Africa on time and occasion. China's influence has tremendous impact on the African population. I fly to China and there's a substantial number of Africans going to school on China's dime in China. |
I was at the Fair last year. I noticed nothing different from one culture to the next when it came to sales... Everyone was treated very well, I included!
Not sure what you saw but Africans are accepted there as readily as anyone else. To the point, I asked an African couple what they were doing in Shenyang. Both told me, they're there to be educated.... I find no fault in their ethic.

|That is simply Chinese Government policy, not Chinese individuals.|
Those in the Chinese Govt already recognise the fact that they need to be seen as embracing everyone because that is what will gretly benefit the chinese economy long term.
It is the rather myopic chinese individuals within china that should wake up to the new realities!
